Yup. I remember when our population hit 200 million. Now we're over 300 million. It isn't just the illegals. The US, on an annual basis, allows in 1 million legal immigrants per year. No one is even sure how many illegals are here. We keep being told it's 11 million illegals. Yet everyday illegals either sneak across the border or overstay visas, which leads some to believe that there could be up to 30 million of them here.

^^^^Exactly!

Liberals love to say that they are very concerned about the environment and the fact that animals are losing their habitats. They say this while saying they want millions of illegals to get amnesty and after that, they want even more illegals to show up and be rewarded with citizenship

Liberals are hypocrites who talk out of both sides of their mouths when it comes to these issues.

Phoenix and Tucson rely on underground aquifers for their water and experts don't know how much water is left in those aquifers. The CBS Evening News once did a story about this.

There are Indian reservations that have to have their drinking water trucked in.

Tell us all where these places are in the US that have unlimited water and unlimited buildable land? Keep in mind that we do need farmland to feed these millions of people you want to come live here.

How many people will be too many for you? 1 billion? 2 billion? India, for example, has over 1 billion people and Bangalore doesn't have enough potable water. Is that the future you want for your descendants? If so, that's despicable.
However many want to get in and contribute. Like we did when your ancestors arrived.

You donít get to pull up the drawbridge after you arrived here. We have plenty of room.

If youíre scared of the demographics change, then go to church. I donít care about it.

Nature and wildlife had to be be given over for your ancestors. Shrug.

Remember when the pro-illegal people kept saying that the wall would interfere with wild life being able to migrate and therefore objected to it? Funny, though how they want us to keep building in this country to accomodate more people (illegal aliens). Wouldn't that also have a negative impact on the natural habits for animal life?

Thanks for the heads-up. Apparently, liberals aren't only generous with other people's money, they're generous with other people's countries.

Oh, yes, we most certainly can "pull up the drawbridge" any time we want. There is no law that says we should throw open our borders and invite the entire world here---and you know it, too.

Oh...and then you pull the tired, worn out rant about being "scared of the demographics change". Seriously? Why would I be afraid of that given my background?

As for the "your ancestors" BS --- ha! Some of my ancestors came to the New World on slave ships---just as some of yours did.

How many people will be too many for you? 1 billion? 2 billion? 3 billion? India, for example, has over 1 billion people and Bangalore doesn't have enough potable water. Is that what you want for your descendants? An overcrowded country with scarce natural resources?

You really should think before you spout such nonsense. We don't have unlimited potable water. Nor do we have unlimited buildable land, much as you wish to deny this.

Not to the extent that it is happening now

And it "had to be given over for your ancestors, too". I know---you don't like to think about that but it is what it is

America isn't a real country anymore. It has no border, citizenship is meaningless, there aren't any unifying values between all the disparate groups of people that come here, the entire economy is a fabrication built on debt and paper money.

All that's left is to carve out a space space for you and your family and take as much as you can get before it all comes crashing down and the wealthy elites flee the sinking ship for greener pastures.

We had a nice country for awhile, but it was given away to the entire third world because people were afraid of being called a bad name.
